Empty (Disciples)

All my devotion and misguided loyalty
Swinging my sword in the garden while you pray for your enemies
All my allegiance, I loved You and You alone
But who’d believe that I could mean it now that the rooster crowed?

Now we’re huddled up here, trying to swallow our fear
We still smell the bread and wine, hear your words running through our minds
Holding our breath now, for what comes next now
Holding out for some kind of sign

But there’s empty cross, there’s an empty tomb
Fire and wind now sweeping in this tiny upper room
There’s a hungry world, there’s a risen King
Unlock the doors, what reason more could we ever need?
So sing with me, I dare you to
Because there’s an empty cross; there’s an empty tomb

We wept from a distance, watched pieces of our dreams
Buried with you, every last wound, sealed with stone, beyond our reach
Sweet, sweet Jesus, every question, every fear
Vanishing, like vapour dreams now that you’re standing here

Now the tears come easy, when you say you’re leaving
We touched the place the nails went through, wanting one more day with you
But it’s goodbye now, for a little while now
Believing everything you said is true

But there’s empty cross, there’s an empty tomb
Fire and wind now sweeping in this tiny upper room
There’s a hungry world, there’s a risen King
Unlock the doors, what reason more could we ever need?
So sing with me, I dare you to
Because there’s an empty cross; there’s an empty tomb

We will sing this song to make Your name live on
Until every heart hears of the way You rescued us

Move in me (Paul) -Jeramy Camp

The man I buried had a heart of stone
Left him in there in the bright light out on a dirt road
The day You saved me, from shadow and shame
Old things gone, got a new song, got a new name
Burnin’ like a wildfire, kickin ‘up flames
A brand new man in a wasteland singing about grace
Gonna jump the fences, until the world is free
But I won’t make a move until You move in me.

I’m knocking on doors, You’re keeping the keys
Maybe they’ll open, maybe they’re not for me
I’m setting the sails, You ready the seas
But I won’t make a move until You move in me.

Gonna sing a little louder, gonna rattle these chains
Locked up tight round midnight won’t stay that way
Gonna bless this dirt floor, gonna kiss these walls
Singing Your praise until the earth shakes and watching them fall

I’m knocking on doors, You’re keeping the keys
Maybe they’ll open, maybe they’re not for me
I’m setting the sails, You ready the seas
But I won’t make a move until You move in me.

 

We can’t do anything till God moves in us, but when he does move us we can’t sit still waiting for someone else to do it! Why wait for someone else to reach our families, when we are right there!
